Thanks for a good feedback. I got some questions though.
It would in my mind make more sense to organize them by tape job, rather than by underlying sources.
So underneath the tape job you would like to see the actual names of the source backup job, which could be expanded further (like this: Tape job > Source Job > Source backup files)?
my VEB jobs have 5 to 7 "Backup Job ServerName on Tape" rows each (the number varies by job). They all have different restore points in them, and some were definitely to different media pools ... If they were organized by the tape job
Not sure, I got this right (maybe you could share a screenshot?). You would like to group the tape jobs with the similar source, even if they have different media pools set as a target?
We have old jobs which are no longer present cluttering up the interface, and I need only catalog the tapes if I need the data from 8 months ago.
I believe, this one can be solved now. Retired tape job can be deleted and old tape from catalogue can be removed from VBR’s catalogue. It should erase all the information regarding this tape and it’s source files from VBR, however, you can easily get it back via ‘catalogue tape’ operation when recovery is required.
